to say the pro-israel lobby which is a very diverse collection of organizations. some of them with very different motives. what got me really wasn't so much the adjective, although i found the adjective odd, it was the verb, intimidates. chuck hagel for 12 years was a senator from the state of nebraska. i looked it up. there are about 6,100 jews in the state of nebraska. i can imagine many lobbies that might have intimidated hagel when he was in the senate. the ethanol lobby, for example, the farm lobby, various other kinds of lobbies. the nra, the pro-life lobby and so on. it's hard to see how he levels a charge that this lobby intimidates people. now, are there pro-israel groups that are lobbying on behalf of israel? absolutely. are there dozens, if not hundreds of lobbies in washington operating in the same way all the time. so, this peculiar charge that this particular jewish lobby intimidates senators was something i found very disturbing and, obviously, not alone in this view. >> but you have writing in the "times" essentially about your column. it is bullying and name calling to

its population. it is taunting israel and its neighbors and supports terrorism. when we think about decisions about iran, we also have to know that every decision has a context. the context of the following, that iran is not the only issue in the region. we are seeing a middle east that is falling apart all across the board. from tunisia, libya, egypt, bahrain, it is becoming unstable. we are seeing extremism. we are seeing a major shift in this region. we are not dealing with iran in a vacuum. the decisions we make have to be decisions for the region. we are dealing with a united states that is tired of war. it has not gone well in the two big wars it conducted in the middle east. it spent trillions of dollars, a lot of mud and -- blood and treasure. it is very clear that the americans are more interested in nationbuilding at home. these are important context to bear in mind. hopefully the iranian regime will change. hopefully, the administration will take diplomacy very seriously. or that sanctions really change the koran and governments mind and they change course -- the iranian
